Floppy Disks

Floppy disks where chosen because they are a symbol of stored information, and Einstein is most famous for his contributions which have increased knowledge in the fields of science and math.

Floppy disks are not recyclable, but hard diskettes are.  They are first crushed; the plastic is separated from the metal which is melted down to make other metal products.  The plastic is used to make kitchen utensils.
